Hi guys, here I go again with a new project log

Long time ago I had the idea to build a Half life lan pc but never had good enough idea to start working on it... well the imminent coming out Half life ² gave me some good inspiration.

I had some parts and stuff to my disposal to start the project then lets go guys

for now , 2 things are sure :

-full time damage paintjob (to remind the Blackmesa atmosphere )
-green uv react watercooling ( to remind toxic liquid)

here is the stuff I have :


- watercooling : wb derfone, mj 1000, copper rad from nissan micra
-2 enremax 120mm
-2 enermax 80mm
-1 120 mm
-2 ccfl uv 10 cm
-1 ccfl uv 30 cm
-1 psu 250w
- actima dvd drive 10 x
- sony crx 1611 16x/10x/40x
- différents acrylic stuffs
- different aluminium stuffs

here are some pics of everything :











In this wallpaper you can have an idea how I want the case lokks like

you can see the differents area I have paint :

- yellow : primer paint
- green the result with the oxidant paint
- red the copper
- blue copper with steel base color



you can see the grain due to the steel base paint



the copper I paint with a brush






the effect is very different according to the laps time between the 2 different paints

finally I m going to paint it with the last effect

thenn I paint the dvd drive :



steel base paint and 2 coats with the oxidant :



the same work with the frame :

Yeah, Piloux's back !!

Your rustiness look (-and-feel ?) is quite amazing ! Will the case be totally "yellow" as the wallpaper is or will you use other colors ? Maybe a "standard red" rustiness effect on the radioactive tubes

En tout cas, bonne chance !

Oooow another project log from my m8 Piloux

The drive looks astonishing just perfect !! I love it

Cant wait to see more, but by my guesses this one is going to be as good as the previous case (if not even better )

Ow and do you mind telling me what kind of paints u use, I might consider this effect on my next project.

Wow I've always liked the idea of a rust scheme paint job but never thought it would look too good.

You've proved me wrong! Keep up the good work
